Nazish Jahangir, who is currently popular as Shameela bhabhi in Geo’s Kahin Deep Jalay recently opened up about her battle with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
In an elaborate post on social media, the actor talked about being a victim of PTSD for the past ten years and explained to her followers what exactly it is.
“Many people are unaware that untreated post-traumatic stress disorder can have a devastating effect on those who have the condition and their loved ones. It not only affects relationships with your family, friends and others, it can trigger serious emotional problems and even cause health problems over time,” Nazish wrote.
She concluded her note writing, “There isn’t a formula that you can insert yourself into to get from horror to healed. Be patient. Take up space. Let your journey be the balm,” adding that she offers prayers regularly.
Born and raised in Islamabad, Nazish began her career in 2015 when she took part in a play by Anwar Maqsood. However, it was not until 2017 that she made her television debut with the drama serial Bharosa. Following that, Nazish was part of several popular dramas including Alif Allah Aur Insaan, Tohmat and Kamzarf.
Nazish was also recently embroiled in controversy after Mohsin Abbas Haider’s former wife Fatema Sohail accused her of having an affair with her husband. Mohsin and Nazish both had refuted the allegations then. Later, it was also rumoured that the two were tying the knot – however, they rejected those reports also.

Addressing these rumours and allegations, Nazish in a recent interview had said, “I was friends with both Mohsin and his wife Fatema and I knew the truth but stayed stay quiet out of respect for Mohsin.”
“I don’t think social media is the place where we openly and publicly discuss our personal matters and get the whole nation involved in trivial matters,” she said, adding, “It is below my dignity. I am totally against domestic violence but I will always stand by real victims and not those who have an ulterior motive.”
Meanwhile, Nazish is also set to make her big-screen debut this year with Lafangay alongside Sami Khan, Mani and Saleem Mairaj.
